    The State University of New York (SUNY) at Binghamton is now offering a course called "#StopWhitePeople2K16" as part of routine training for residential assistants. [Snip] The presenters of the course ... state their purpose is to "help others take the next step in understanding diversity, privilege, and the society we function within," presumably the "white" society they plan to "stop" at the event. The three RAs claim they will give "#StopWhitePeople2K16" course attendees the "tools" to respond to "uneducated people" with "'good' arguments." You know, the people who preach mutual respect, equality under God, and constitutional freedoms. Those people....

    The State University of New York at Binghamton (SUNY-Binghamton) is offering a training class titled “StopWhitePeople2k16,” to instruct residential assistants (RAs) on how to deal with “uneducated” people who don’t believe in ideas like white privilege. The class is just one of several available to RAs at the school, and was discovered by the Binghamton Review, a student newspaper. Residential assistants are students who agree to assist with overseeing and monitoring residential life in return for receiving a free room from the school. Apparently, though, Binghamton RAs also have the responsibility of “stopping” white people. “The premise of this session...

The list -- which includes classically hippie towns such as: Homer, Alaska; Santa Cruz, California; Athens, Georgia; and Asheville, North Carolina -- was written by Matt Meltzer. He wrote, "Thought we'd go Woodstock, did ya? Well, aside from being home to the mud-soaked music fest on Yasgur's farm, it's really become more of a hippie tourist trap than an actual town. Ithaca, however, has THE WORLD'S LARGEST FREAKING PEACE SIGN."

    Al Sharpton has been a minor player in the Black Lives Matter chaos, but returned to his divisive habits last weekend with an op-ed in the New York Daily News on the 25th anniversary of the Crown Heights riots, casting Jews as the aggressors. In his re-telling, the young black boy who died tragically in a traffic accident involving the Lubavitcher Rebbe’s motorcade, Gavin Cato, was a precursor to Michael Brown, the black teen who attacked a police officer and was killed in Ferguson, Missouri.

    With the news last week that Aetna — like UnitedHealth and Humana — is pulling out of most state exchanges, ObamaCare seems set to implode. Even President Obama seems to realize it: He’s preparing to launch a major push to draw in more people — preferably, healthy young ones — to his health-care marketplaces. In the meantime, there was grim tidings for New York: Roughly one out of every five companies in the state is hiring fewer workers thanks to ObamaCare. Companies say they’re shifting to more part-timers. They’re cutting workers’ wages and benefits and hiking prices. Those were the...

It can be charming, but also maddening for riders who feel that drivers do not understand where they want to go. Don’t you have to speak English, some wonder, to drive a taxi here?

    At an emotional funeral service for a New York City imam and his assistant who were gunned down on a Queens street, one friend of the victims took the microphone and demanded that the city install security cameras outside mosques citywide to help protect Muslims from harassment or violence. “Each street corner should have security cameras around our places of worship,” said Anwar Hussein Khan, a teacher. But in the days following that impassioned plea, the city’s Muslim community has since backed away from that request. Muslim activists and civil liberties groups here have spent years opposing police surveillance of...

    Facing numerous analyses showing his signature jobs programs misallocated resources and put few New Yorkers to work, Gov.

Speaking after an unrelated event in the Bronx, the governor defended his attacks last week on state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli, who released unflattering audits of two Cuomo programs this summer. The governor again insisted that those findings were just DiNapoli’s opinions, opinions which are open to debate given the comptroller’s history as an assemblyman from Long Island.

    The Clinton campaign is gearing up for Donald Trump “to bet everything on one final, major attack,” according to a fundraising email sent Monday morning by campaign manager Robby Mook. Mook has come to this conclusion, he writes, because Trump has raised a ton of money but hasn’t spent anything on TV ads. “Last month, Trump and the GOP raised over $80 million. And he hasn’t spent one dollar on any TV advertising. I’m not exaggerating — literally since the general election began, he hasn’t spent any money whatsoever on one of the most critical components of a winning campaign,”...

    We keep hearing that "black lives matter," but they seem to matter only when that helps politicians to get votes, or when that slogan helps demagogues demonize the police. The other 99 percent of black lives destroyed by people who are not police do not seem to attract nearly as much attention in the media. What about black success? Does that matter? Apparently not so much. We have heard a lot about black students failing to meet academic standards.

    For years, the federal government avoided insuring mortgages in black neighborhoods, a practice known as redlining that exacerbated racial divides throughout America’s cities. Redlining has long been outlawed, but in New York City, the federal government is again disproportionately hurting black homeowners, according to a federal lawsuit filed by a nonprofit that represents low-income New Yorkers. This time, the suit says, the government is fueling racial disparities not through its lending policies but in how it handles foreclosures. Since the financial crisis pushed thousands of homeowners in New York and across the country into foreclosure, the federal Department of Housing...

    The shady Lebanese-Nigerian businessman who got Hillary Clinton’s State Department to arrange a high-level meeting was only one of a dizzying number of big ­donors to the Clinton Foundation to score government favors. The list includes high rollers whose relationships with the Clintons made them even richer; countries with dubious human-rights records; and companies looking to grease the skids to get an edge on the competition. Frank Giustra, a billionaire mining magnate from Vancouver, pledged $100 million to the foundation in 2005 — and then reaped a fortune from the relationship.

    De Blasio, Clinton cronies are carving up the city.

    The ‘T’ for Trump has been on the Staten Island lawn since May.

The fire marshal was investigating damage, Sunday evening and had not yet determined the cause. Ground lights typically shine on the sign, but Pirozzolo said last night they were out. He believes someone was attacking...
